4 Exterior Upgrades With a Small Price Tag & Big Impact

When it comes to making exterior upgrades, simple changes can make a big impact – and they don’t have to be very costly or take a lot of time. Rather than investing in a complete remodel, consider these elements that make it easy to change the overall look of your home.

Install a Stone Walkway

A real stone walkway installed along the front of your home adds a wow factor, and can be used to connect exterior architecture with your hardscape. If you are thinking about adding a walkway, think about foot traffic. Where would guests naturally approach your home’s front door?

Construct Stone Columns

For homes with a rustic style, stone columns or pillars can be a nice aesthetic addition. Faux stone panels and pillar kits are a quick and affordable way to transform an entryway. Faux stone is easy to install, waterproof, lightweight and durable.

Get Creative With Trim

It’s easy to add visual sophistication to an exterior with trim. Well-chosen trim around windows and doors makes them appear larger and more inviting. Trim and fascia products come in different lengths, widths, profiles, textures and substrates, for more options to complement your home’s style.

Light Up Your Yard

Accent landscaping features and make the entry to your home more inviting with low-voltage path lights. The wiring for these lights doesn’t have to be buried; instead, you can conceal it under mulch or gravel. Solar path lights are another affordable alternative, although they require several hours of full sun to produce a strong light that lasts the whole night.
